The Great Gatsby Sewing Challenge

Erin from Miss Crayola Creepy officially announced The Great Gatsby Sewing Challenge!

The challenge is inspired by the movie release of The Great Gatsby. The main idea is to make a dress, a blouse, a headband, a hat, anything with a 1920s feel.

I love this period so I am really thinking of joining in… I have to look at my schedule – the deadline will be at the end of May.

Burda Classic’s
